Folger wins as Lowes crashes & Zarco has mechnical issues

Folger was victorious in a dramatic Moto2™ race that saw Zarco suffer a mechanical fault, while favourites Lowes and Rabat crashed out.

The 21 year-old German Jonas Folger (AGR Team) took advantage of Johan Zarco’s mechanical fault, after the Frenchman had established a comfortable lead, to take the checkered flag and claim his first Moto2™ victory. Xavier Simeon (+5.051s) finished 2nd on the Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 Kalex, ahead of Thomas Luthi (+12.123s) in 3rd.

Alex Rins (+12.202s) launched an incredible attack at the end to almost steal the final podium spot, but had to settle for 4th on the Paginas Amarillas HP40 bike, ahead of Franco Morbidelli (+14.382s) and last year's Moto2™ Championship runner-up Mika Kallio (+14.413s) in 6th on the Italtrans Racing Team Kalex.
